WARNING: This story contains nudity

Paris Jackson raised quite a few eyebrows over the weekend by posting a topless photo of herself sunbathing, with only two very carefully-placed emojis protecting it from going full-blown X-rated.

After posting the original photo, the 19-year-old daughter of the King of Pop was hit with plenty of criticism but quickly hit back with a perfect response - another topless photo.

i'll say it again for those questioning what i stand for and how i express myself. nudity started as a movement for ‘going back to nature’, ‘expressing freedom’, ‘being healthier’ and was even called a philosophy. being naked is part of what makes us human. for me it helps me feel more connected to mama gaia. i'm usually naked when i garden. it's actually a beautiful thing and you don't have to make it sexual the way many hollywood stars (and the media) do. not only is your body a temple and should be worshipped as so, but also part of feminism is being able to express yourself in your own way, whether it's being conservative and wearing lots of clothes or showing yourself. there's different ways of absorbing mother earth's energy, my favorites are earthing which is absorbing the earths vibrations from contact between the soil and your bare feet, as well as letting your naked skin absorb the rays of the sun. the human body is a beautiful thing and no matter what "flaws" you have, whether it be scars, or extra weight, stretch marks, freckles, whatever, it is beautiful and you should express yourself however you feel comfortable. if this makes some of you upset i completely understand and i encourage you to maybe no longer follow me, but i cannot apologize for this in any way. it is who i am and i refuse to shy away and keep my beliefs a secret. every one as an opinion and every one has their beliefs. we don't always agree with one another and that's okay. but again, we are all human, and to appreciate the things that other people do that make us human helps us feel connected. how can that be a bad thing?

She captioned the second snap with a lengthy explainer telling her followers that "being naked helps me feel more connected to Mama Gaia".

Jackson may have attracted a lot of attention, but she's only one of many celebrities who love to strip down for social media.

Emily Ratajkowski is not afraid to show more than a little skin.

The stunning model and actress frequently posts risque photos on social media - in some, she's wearing lingerie, and in others ... nothing at all.

The Beebs sent Beliebers into an absolute meltdown last year when he posted a nudie pic to Instagram while on vacation in Bora Bora.

The snap - which showed the Bieber butt - racked up over 719,000 likes in just one hour before the star deleted it.

It wouldn't be a 'Celebrities Getting Nude' list if Kim Kardashian wasn't on it.

It's hard to pinpoint just one specific occasion when the reality TV star stripped down for social media, so let's just pay tribute to arguably one of her more famous snaps.

Lea Michele

Scream Queens

actress Lea Michele rang in 2017 in a very cheeky fashion, posting a naked picture to Instagram.

In it, the 30-year-old is seen lying luxuriously on a wall in a wooded area, with her head thrown back and wearing nothing at all.
